Islands Kids Menu

This post is on the recently updated Islands Kid Menu offering healthier options for your little gremmies and I have two, yes, two, $100 gift cards to give away so you can take your family to check out the menu for yourself. Enter below!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Islands Restaurant.  I worked at the Islands Restaurant in Fountain Valley in high school as a hostess. It was “the” place to work in high school and I felt like hot stuff in my Hawaiian shirt, let me tell you!

Back in those days (22 years ago – gulp) a hostess asked, “How many in your party? Smoking or non?” Yes, it was so long ago, there were actually still smoking sections!

Well, a lot has changed since those days, good-bye smoking sections (thank goodness) and the uniforms are updated (no more Hawaiian shirts, short shorts and white tennies!) but Islands amazing menu offering the BEST burgers, fries and drinks remains the same, just better.

Islands fries are my favorite fries in the entire world.

Islands New Kids Menu 

Now that I am all growns up with kids of my own, I can fully appreciate Islands for not only the best french fries, but also as one of the best kid-friendly restaurants in Orange County.

Islands recently updated their Gremmie Menu for kids with new items for Little Surfers 6 & Under ($3.95) and those Older Surfers 7-12 ($5.09).


First off, how AWESOME is it to have less expensive options with smaller portions for little ones? So smart!

The updated menu also gives parents and their kids a chance to mix and match options while having fun dining out with the family.

Islands Kids Menu highlights include:

~ Grilled chicken sandwich

~ Fresh fruit with organic greek yogurt

~ Noodles with marinara or parmesan and butter

~ Veggie sides with ranch dip

Susanne and I were recently invited to check out the new menu, so we took our little gremmies for a weeknight Islands dinner. We love the Islands paper kids menus and activities to keep them entertained.

We ordered four different kids’ meals and asked for extra plates so we could give each gremmie a bite of the different entrees and sides.


I love that the Islands Kids Menu offers variety and more options rather than the same ‘ole same ‘ole kids menu standards.  With veggies, fruit, yogurt, salads and frozen fruit bars now on the menus for kids, there are lots more healthy picks for your little ones. Just make sure someone at your table orders the fries!

Islands Restaurants can be found all over Southern California. Click here to find the Islands locations nearest you.


Two lucky readers will win a $100 gift card to take your family! Winner must live in an area close to an Islands. Enter below. Good luck!

    oohhh so could use this. With being a full time college student and full time Mom it is hard to find time to cook every night. Sure could do with a fun break with the kids.

    I agree that islands is one of the best kid restaurants around. I also love that it is loud that my kids don’t have to worry about whispering the entire meal, and the TVs showing surfing is pretty cool to watch, for both kids and adults!
